Summary“Global animal law” is a new field of law and legal research. Legal animal studies react to the involving human−animal relationship, analyses and criticizes animal-regarding law with classical juridical and interdisciplinary methods and seeks to stimulate new developments. Animal law is inevitably global, because the global nature of the problem requires global solutions. The research agenda aspires to build conceptual foundations and to map and promote a global animal law.
